Columbus Rationality - Strengths and Weaknesses

Self assessment and self improvement:

This week Columbus Rationality is going to be using a couple of personal development tools like Strengths finders to assess our personal strength areas, and another descriptive inventory to get some info. on how others see us.  We'll also reflect on and discuss our trouble spots in terms of fallacious reasoning, and how we can improve in those areas.


Rationality is about the science of reasoning, and acting effectively to meet your goals.

Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is often swearing and discussion of mature issues.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
